Photography Workshop


The following shots were taken on a Lighting Workshop back in August 2011. For these 3 images were to illustrate a very simple setup of 2 lights and a reflector to create a high key photograph. The setup was as follows.

1 Beauty Dish (exposure at f/4) directly in front of the model with a reflector underneath to reduce contrast and shadow under the chin.

2 Behind the model out of sight from the camera another light pointing back at the white backdrop but at a higher power creating an exposure at f5.6 therefore a stop brighter than the subject, in order to create the bright white behind the subject.

A very simple setup; that created some stunning results. The camera settings were ISO 100 70mm focal length at f/4 and at 1/125/sec.

Another Wedding Photo Shoot


Just a few examples from a wedding I shot back in July 2011

Below is a nice example of exposing for the background to emphasis the shape of something, in this case a rose.

The next 2 photographs were taken without flash using a high ISO. I didn't want to use flash; which would have blown the colours from the band/disco lights. The venue was very dark so it was difficult to achieve, however by setting the ISO quite high 3200 and the aperture as wide as I could at f/2.8 I was able to achieve correct exposure at a shutter speed of 1/125 sec which helped considerably to capture the moment with minimal shake from the camera and blur from the movement in the scene.
